DBS Checks

Staff and volunteers in the voluntary youth sector should not carry out ‘regulated activity’  until they have undergone a relevant Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.

Young Solutions are a registered umbrella body for the Disclosure and Barring Service. This means we can provide a responsive and prompt DBS checking service, primarily to the voluntary youth sector, so that organisations can have confidence that new staff and volunteers are appropriately checked and that existing staff have their DBS updated swiftly and thoroughly.

This helps ensure that proper ‘staffing’ decisions are made in such a way that it ensures unsuitable people are prevented from working with children and young people.

We produce a regular DBS and Safeguarding Newsletter, sharing developments in DBS services and when major developments are announced, expert-led briefings are arranged to disseminate information and provide detailed explanations.

Those who are signed up to our service are entitled to join our registered body DBS steering group which meets four times a year to quality control and monitor our DBS services.

If you are already signed up to our DBS service or are wanting to find out more about DBS checks, you will find more information, documents and DBS guidance on our DBS Useful Information page.
